This is really beautiful place, one of the best in Glacier National Park.

I love it Patriot.
The classic look is a glassy smooth lake surface with perfect reflection: BUT... I like a bit of ripple just as much.
This one has a lot going for it: clouds, mountains, water, stones in the water - everything is just great.

Woah! Good capture. The canoe really touches it off nicely. That's serenity!

Still days like that are just gift to landscape photographers, they seldom happen here that's for sure.

Hear Hear.
kd Have you ever see an image of Cradle Mountain in Tasmania?
The typical touristy shot is mirror surface on Dove Lake, with Cradle Mountain in background and a perfect reflection in the lake.
I don't know how many days in a year that one would see it like that, but the day I was there we had white caps on the lake and the mountain was invisible behind rain/mist.

Great shot! Did you take a few? I only ask because I think the one thing that could make it stronger is having the canoe at around the right 1/3 k=line instead of so close to center.
It works in the center but I suspect it could work better on the 1/3.

Nice work!

Matt, thanks for the advice, I have yet another photo, but
I do not know which shot is best.
